Or you could just google what you see in the picture. Like Paul said, hot with key in run position, and a ground.

I think.

Skipper if it is two that you have then one is a ground to the computer and the other generates a signal to the computer and IRRC its .5-1.5 volts.
Three wire is one hot from the computer to the heating element along with a shared ground then the signal wire.
Four is one hot two grounds and a signal wire.

If you have a location on your header for the O-2 sensor I would move it there.

White whites are for the heater. Black or gray is the sensor side.

And it was nice to get to meet you folks Saturday, we really enjoyed the visit! Thank you for the invite to stop by! Randi said on the way home how that's how we'll probably be after years of marriage - I would have to say that is a compliment to us, as you have a really nice family!

Rick, I'm sorry I didn't already get something posted about your visit. It was my plan, but I just didn't get it done.

Rick and his new wife took time out of their honeymoon trip to stop by our house for a visit. We are on a main trail into the state, unless you're running the coast... which they sort of were, so they went a good distance out of their way to see us. I can't describe how much it means to be able to meet folks I have been communicating with FOR YEARS! Rick immediately helped solve an XJ problem! I love it! Great visit. Great conversation. Thank you Both. My marriage has been awesome. I pray the same for you two.

And I also want to acknowledge SLO_Ken, who bought a catalytic coverter from me (used) and paid more than I asked. Wassup wit dat! There are some mighty folks on this forum, spread all over the nation. Thank you, Ken. I sincerely hope it will serve your purpose.

Hey Scott,

Turns out my PMs are all jacked up dive I'm no longer a paying member. So in regard to your earlier message...

I remember the drawings you made earlier in your thread... that's what brought you to the forefront of my mind! This would be for a D30 axle. Scott
I will certainly give it a shot

It may take me a lil' while, but I'd love to help you out. It would help a bunch if I had a few pics of the original control arm mounts and how they connect. It's a lot like my dodge ram, but I wanna make sure I have it nailed.

I hope it does too! I'm talking with the smog referee this week to determine if my engine change will need to meet CA or FED emission standards. If it's FED, then I think it should be good to go!

I'll get that for you, then we'll go over to Fallon's thread. Thanks, Daniel.

I just <gasp> finished reading <pant> this entire thread in two days. I feel like I know all you guys so well! Now that you are at this point I don't have anything to contribute except to confirm the info about 3/4wire O2 sensors being the self heating type.

One question... When the driveshaft failed why didn't you put it in 4WD and drive home using the front wheels ala FWD?

Don't hate me for this, but yesterday I sold my Subaru. 166,000 miles and the most major work ever done afaik was brakes and exhaust. Ok Ok I hear y'all gasping at the heretical statement, but I can redeem myself! I sold it so I can get an 86 CJ7 with a 360, t176, D300.

Thanks for letting me join in... Uhh, assuming I don't hear differently.

Welcome Scrounger. This thread has certainly been epic! I can't believe you read the whole thing. There are only a handful of guys who have done that. I am humbled!

Ironic it is at the stage of something you are familiar with. For me, O2 sensors is something new. Thanks for the follow up and confirmation.

And no foul regarding the Subaru. I've never owned one, but I bust Dave's chops every chance I get!!

We never installed Clay's front drive shaft. In fact, I have completely forgotten about it! I regeared the rear end and I never did the front. I will probably complete it this winter now that my Jeep is up on blocks.

I don't have an AC and my fans are a separate electric set up, so I never paid it any mind.

Not sure how you would fool the computer to stop throwing those codes, but if you find out, I'd be interested in what you did.

So either a source of pressure would be needed for a sensor reading, or figure out how the switch functions, and create the Scenario.

I don't think oil pressure at idle would be enough pressure, fuel pressure on a FI engine might be. Or, if you had OBA the sensor could be placed there.

These are just some random thoughts, I have no clue if this actually throws a code. Might be worth looking into at any rate.

The A/C has two failsafe switches built into the pressure system. One for high pressure (> 500psi) and one for low pressure (< 25psi). Both these switches need to be closed in order for the A/C clutch relay to be activated. This is easy to fake by simply twisting the wires together, effectively shorting your (non-existent) switch. However, having these wires not connected should not throw a code, since the circuit is designed to only be closed when the AC is on.

I suspect that the code is being activated by a diagnostic self-check on the AC clutch relay. The relay is basically an electromagnet that pulls a high amp contactor closed when a current is passed through it. As such, there should be a constant resistance across the coil that can be checked by the computer to ensure that the relay is intact and able to function. If that resistance is not there, the computer MAY set a code. I'm not sure about this, but it makes sense to me.

So, to fool the computer, you need to put a resistor from switched 12V to pin 34 on your ECM. First measure the resistance across terminals 85 and 86 of a relay, so you get the right size resistor.

If there is an empty spot in the PDC for the A/C relay, just plug one in there. I would think that would trick it as it looks like that is all the ECM is looking for. If you ever need a spare relay, just grab that one to get you home for another relay.
